Save the Children publishes the names of 373 children killed in Gaza in plea for a "permanent ceasefire"

The names of 373 children killed in Gaza have been published by Save the Children in a bid to remind the world of the "urgent need to push for a permanent ceasefire”.

'Not one more name' calls for a permenant ceasefire in Gaza

The charity published the list of names in national newspapers by taking out a series of full-page advertisements in titles including the Independent, the i, the Times, the Guardian and the Telegraph.

Save the Children chief executive, Justin Forsyth, said the death of so many children in such a short space of time was “an outrage”.

He added: “To see the names of the children, some as young as a few months, written in stark black and white brings home the tragedy that has befallen Gaza’s children. One child’s death is too many – 373 is an outrage that is a strain on the world’s conscience…by publishing these names, we are reminding the world of the urgent need to push for a permanent ceasefire.”

The total number of children’s lives claimed since ‘Not one more name’ was published has risen to 408 after more bodies were recovered.

The campaign calls for a permanent ceasefire and encourages people to sign the charity’s petition to the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-Moon.
